Burnt Alive - Graham Staines (English)
It was on January 23, 1999 that the Australian missionary, Graham Staines and his two sons, were ambushed by a frenzied mob with flaming torches and burnt alive in Manoharpur, Orissa, India. This book is a tribute to Graham Staines. It takes a look at the life and work of this man of God, among the socially outcast lepers, reaching out to them with love and compassion. This also has the inspiring story of the 105-year-old Mayurbhanj leprosy mission – a symbol of supreme sacrifice. Furthermore, it delves deep into the Christian Faith; the Freedom of conscience; and the Christian attitude to persecution, discussing these threadbare, objectively and impartially. It tugs at your conscience with probing questions. And helps you to exercise it judiciously and fearlessly. This book is living, powerful and touching. Read it and pass it on to everyone you know.
